Back in college, way back then I was known for my grilled cheese. Like I was famous in the dorm for it. All the guys used to come to our room for one when they were hungry. Odd yes, but quite hilarious all at the same time. You know what my secret ingredient was? Velveeta. Good old Velveeta. A thick slice of Velveeta between two pieces of bread was what made it. Super simple, super easy, but amazing all the same. It was like liquid gold between those two slices of bread. It provided just the right amount of melted cheese and perfection.
When I think of Velveeta my mind always goes towards those grilled cheese sandwiches and the memories created around them. Another thing we always made was Queso Dip with our Velveeta. I think those are two of the staples when I think of Velveeta, but Velveeta is so much more then that!
When I needed a recipe with Velveeta I knew I wanted to spice up my regular old grilled cheese and this is the super fabulous, super simple recipe I came up with. I know the guys would be running to my dorm now if they had a chance at these! Don’t tell the hubby about the guys and my grilled cheese though!
I went shopping at Wal-Mart (which you can see here) and found the Velveeta out in one of the aisle displays. It was just waiting for me!
Plus I grabbed a few other ingredients for the recipe!
This is the perfect simple lunch or dinner recipe that will have the whole family smiling. A hearty sandwich stuffed full of meat, salsa and cheese!
